I’m Chris. I’m reaching out to everyone from Idaho’s IDOC. My hopes are to meet many new friends during my time here. I am from California, was only passing through Idaho, and wrecked my car. I got 15 years for DUI. Since then, things haven’t seemed to get better, and now with the arrival of COVID-19, things are now at a crawl. It’s affected all of us one way or the other.
